Manchester United and Leicester City have played 120 matches in the history of both clubs – the first match being played on the 22nd September 1894; a 3-2 victory for Newton Heath over Leicester Fosse. United have won 64 times, drawn 28 times and lost 33 times. United last lost against Leicester in the 5-3 thriller on the 21st September 2014. Since then, United have been undefeated in seven matches; winning five times and drawing twice. Before the defeat, United had an unbeaten run of 11 matches, winning ten and drawing once.

Manchester City beat Bournemouth 4-0 at the Etihad in the Premier League this afternoon, extending their lead at the top of the league to 14 points meaning the pressure may be on United to bring it back down to the eleven point lead they held earlier this afternoon. Come on UNITED!
